I have been taking photographs since I was very young, starting out with a Brownie Reflex camera, developing film and printing photos in my basement. I progressed to a 35mm Minolta SLR continuing to take mostly family and travel photos for a number of years. In the past 10 years, after having retired from a full time engineering career, I have become a serious photographer, first with a 35mm film SLR camera and now a Digital SLR. Although I still enjoy and occasionally shoot with medium format and 35mm film cameras, I generally shoot with a DSLR. I have taken and continue to take classes and workshops at Sierra College to hone my skills.

I like capturing memorable and beautiful images with the camera that you will enjoy for years. I do portraits, events, documentary photography, landscapes, nature and other art. I am located in the Northern California Gold Country region in Grass Valley and provide services in this area. Please contact me for further information.
